May be a bit late as I stumbled here hoping for a solution to another issue.

I found the same issue after I believe 1809 update (or a subsequent one).

I ended up adding the ReportInfo variable to my form's print button routines,
as well as using repCopies=1. This solved those. I don't print interactive
so no help there.
